Z3950 search results

Marcel de Rooy
Hi all,

Do you miss the direct buttons for Card and MARC preview too in the Z3950 search results table in recent Koha versions? Now you need to open the Actions menu first: so you need two clicks.
If you have any feedback on this topic, please add your comment on bug 23302.

Thanks,
Marcel

A related question: When using the Z39.50 search function in
cataloging do you think it's necessary that the search form and search
results appear in a pop-up window? The MARC/Card/Import buttons were
combined into a menu because of the limited space available in the
window. Changing the size would make things less cramped.

Is it important that one be able to have the Z39.50 window open
separately from the MARC editor?

I would love to hear as many opinions as possible!

Hey Owen,

for me it can be resized as long as it works without scrolling in
1280x1024 as we still have monitors that size.

Owen,

I don't know that popping out the Z39.50 window is necessary for me for
new cataloging, but if I'm updating an existing record I find it helpful
to be able to have the Z39.50 marc preview data in the pop-up window so
I can look at the existing record in the regular window and examine both
the original and the potential replacement side-by-side.

As far as window size goes, I had several catalogers complain that the
pop-up was too small a couple of years ago, so I wrote some jQuery to
set a new default height and width but it set those by pixel count. 
Shortly thereafter I had some other catalogers complain that the pop-up
was too big for their screens because they have their screen resolution
set very low to accommodate their eyesight.  We actually have one
librarian with a very large screen that's been set to 800x600 because of
vision problems and the original jQuery (which looked great on most
screens) pushed the edges of the pop-up off beyond the margins of her
monitor unless it loaded at the extreme upper left corner of the
monitor.  Sometime last year I re-wrote that jQuery so it sizes the
pop-up based on the user's screen resolution and also pushes the window
to the upper left corner of the screen.  When I saw this e-mail thread I
realized that I had never added that jQuery to the library on the wiki,
so I just did that.  It's at
https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/JQuery_Library#Reize_Z39.50_pop-up_window_when_loaded 
if anyone following this conversation is interested.

See you all later,

George
